It's been mentioned in the past in this space, that the Steelers have essentially conquered the entire earth and the galaxy, so we'll add a few more places to the list.
Today we got some pix sent from our friend Giovanni -- he of the Roman Steeler bar -- and apparently now Steeler Nation (a nation with no boundaries, mind you) is trying to conquer ancient history and world religion as well. Take a look:
... and here, at the Vatican, where Giovanni reports there are "no Cardinals!" ... good line!
... and with Catholocism wrapped up, the Nation moves on to Buddhism ...
This shot is sent to us from Matthew Geppert and Dr. Lawrence Ng who are showing their Steeler pride in front of the Potala Palace, in Lhasa, Tibet. The two are there as part of a winter screening for children with congenital heart defects in Tibet. An Oakmont organization, SEAPC, has been searching for kids with CHD in Tibet for the past ten years through their Touching Hearts Project that has Dr. Brad Keller from Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh as its medical director.
Touching Hearts is a partnership between SEAPC and Peoples Regional Hospital of Tibet, PRC. The program is designed to screen children for heart defects and then provide the much needed medical treatment free of charge. Major benchmarks for the project include the regions first ASD closure, screening of over 12000 children, treatment for over 300, and the recent installation of Tibet's first pediatric cardio care facility.
With all of the projects strenuous tasks in front of them, Dr. Lawrence and Matt still manage to take time to expand the Steeler Nation internationally.
Great work over there guys!
